School Hours of Operation for 2021-2022 School Year
During the Spring of 2021, parents of Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) students were surveyed regarding their preference of start times for the 2021-2022 school year. Options provided in the survey were for (1) middle/high school students to begin at approximately 7:30 and primary/elementary school students at approximately 9:30 or (2) primary/elementary school students to begin at approximately 7:30 and middle/high school students at approximately 9:30.
Option 1 was selected by 70% of those responding.
The schedule for the 2021-2022 school year will look the same as the 2020-2021 schedule except in-person learning will take place five (5) days per week. The schedule will be as follows:
|SCHOOL||Instructional Day Start Time||Instructional Day End Time|
|Locust Grove Elementary||9:05am||3:43pm|
|Locust Grove Primary||9:15am||3:53pm|
|Locust Grove Middle||7:25am||2:25pm|
|Orange County High||7:25am||2:31pm|
|Prospect Heights Middle||7:25am||2:25pm|
This Two-Tier Standard Day Schedule has been developed in response to the need for most drivers to drive two routes, one elementary and one secondary.
